I have used this site to provide MIDI examples for my students during technology
demonstrations. My students have used this site to help them complete some of
the course assignments. The organization and ease of access to the files is
very good.
The students like being able to have choices within each of the periods. I like
seeing them motivated. There is a place where you can submit your own MIDI
files for inclusion at the site.

Technical Remarks:

To listen to the Classicla MIDI sequences, you must have a MIDI player
associated with the .mid extension in your web browser. There are many MIDI
players available such as Media Player and Crescendo.
